Mar 19, 2020

On Thursday, March 19, 2020, Mayor Don Walters announced the “Cuyahoga Falls Cares” Initiative to help residents who are willing to give or need assistance during this time of social isolation and distancing during the COVID-19 pandemic. Whether someone needs help running errands, having their trash can taken to and from the curb, or a trip to the pharmacy, there are volunteers available to assist. Additionally, Mayor Walters is urging residents to take part in a Post-It Note campaign by posting their name, phone number, and address on the doors of their neighbors in an effort to offer assistance to those who may not have family nearby who can help. Residents may contact the Neighborhood Excellence, Communication, and Community Outreach Department at 330.971.8208 or necco@cityofcf.com.

“We are in a time of uncertainty, but one thing is certain; Cuyahoga Falls residents are caring, compassionate and willing to help each other any way possible,” stated Mayor Walters. “Many people have personally reached out asking for and volunteering to help and so I am bringing this initiative to the community to help our residents who need it most during this difficult time.”
